This week, Hawks are focussing on the element of the earth - water. We will be looking at rain and rain storms.
Hawks will be reading the book 'The Rainy Day'. The link below is a reading of the story.
Wizz Kids – ie (phase 5)
Bright Sparks – w (phase 3)
Smarty pants – t (phase 2)
Monday – Rain themed messy bag! Can you put blue/white paint in a freezer bag, close the bag and then use your finger to create the letter by making marks? (Please see Twitter for pictures of this)
Tuesday – Can you use playdough to make the sound? Or can you create sound buttons and press the playdough each time you say the sound.
Wednesday – Go on a hunt! Can you look around your home and find something that includes the focussed sound? (eg w – water)
Thursday – Can you put some rice/flour/sugar in a tray, and use your finger to write the sound, or words that include the sound! Use your phonics to help you spell the words.
Friday – Lets practise our handwriting! Can you write the sound on lined paper? Do not forget that your letters sit on the line.
Monday – Take a look at the story of ‘The Rainy Day’ – A story link can be found on the Hawks class page which will take you to YouTube.
Discuss the story – What do you think the story might be about? What do you think will happen next? Can you summarise the story?
Tuesday – Use colourful semantics to help write a sentence about a picture from the book. Can you write the sentence or a few key words?
Wednesday – Use colourful semantics to help write a sentence about the second picture from the book. Can you write the sentence or a few key words?
Thursday – Can you describe the rain? Take a look at a few videos on YouTube of rainfall – is it raining outside? Can you have a go at writing an acrostic poem? (see RAIN poem template)
